https://dcwebforms.dc.gov/pay/dpw1/ What precisely is the point of having an online system for ordering trashcans from DC if this system NEVER WORKS????
Looks like the vaccinate.dc.gov portal can use some help connecting with seniors attempting to register for a Covid vaccination. Registering today, again, portal will not display any vaccination sites to choose from even at 9:00 am when the new batch of appointments became available. When I use iPad site claims there are appointments available but again site will not display any centers to chose from. When I called the listing phone number at 8:02 I was told I was 424th in line. Is it even possible that my call will be answered today. Should I actually continue to hold? is there a cut off point? Perhaps the recording could contain more information

How Would You Like Being Lied To? Children, Like Secoriea Turner, Are Special, And Should Not Be Mistreated By Lies Told Them About Christmas With Its Profane Traditions! 😲
It Is Just About Sun Worship. Did You Know That Cathedrals Are Designed So Congregations Can Face East For Sun Worship? Christmas Is Also About Sun Worship Which Is Why It Is Celebrated In December, And Children Are Lied To Which Causes Long-Term Effects!
How Would You Feel If This Happened To You? Children Are Special, Like Secoriea Turner, And Should Not Be Mistreated By Lying To Them About Christmas With Its Pagan Traditions, Or Harming Them!

Your online services provide no help when seeking assistance. I have attempted to use your TAS (Ticket Alert System) and entered the requested information, which I get an error msg stating my name and car registration do not match???????? I know my name, I know my vehicle tag, I know the address and state where I have it registered, so why do I get this msg telling me I don't know what I'm submitting!!!!!!!!! Another issue I have is you do not list a phone number so a human can call to speak with another human. I have sent an email to your help address I got off the internet asking a question and as of today (20 days later) I still have received a response back. The employees of your municipality appear they only want a paycheck and not have to do anything to help anyone in exchange for it. If I'm wrong just respond back with a good phone number or email.
Please listen to the majority of voting people.We are very afraid of Trumps lack of knowledge and and the list goes on.sHe is "rubbing"his conflicts of interest in our face .Every quedtionable,outrageous action goes unquestioned by the republicans,WHY.
